    need some euro tips


    So I got loot to pick up a toy. There is a Volvo 850 turbo I'm considering picking up on craigslist. I love the way it looks. I'm seeing online that some people are making 350-400hp with these things. But I can't find much info or links to parts websites. Any help would be appreciated

    Thats what im thinking. He is advertising all this stuff done to it, so im wondering if its pretty quick...... I would be stepping out of my realm of knowledge if I pick it up. I'd be learning the whole way and don't want to get into something I'm gonna regret.

    Yeah I thought the same as you. I'm fine with it though. I can have some power to play on the weekends but still toss my kids in the back during the week. Lol... telling by the pics, the guy knows what he's doing also...

    Go to turbobricks forum. I went there a lot when I was about to purchase an Evolve S60.
